Who is this guy? Is he worth a pickup?

I know its the Giants, but he is absolutely carving them up. The guy has electric stuff.

What do you see him doing in the short term? His next start is at Dodger Stadium

Very good prospect, but very young and has control issues. I expect he'll have dominant days like today and other days where he can't find the plate. Command was good at AAA in April, but I'm not sure it will carry over consistently into the majors yet.

Keep in mind he was against the Giants who don't have a super-strong lineup. He gets the Dodgers next time out and I don't know if I'd be comfortable running him out there. He'll have his great days but his proven command issues will come back to bite him from time to time.
